    Thanks, This is exactly the context that I needed. It is interesting that Russians make reference to the "ground" in this situation and that English usually just say "Drop".
    IMO, "Брось оружие" is more common then "Оружие на землю" in Russian too.
    Btw, Брось оружие - Drop the weapon. But: Drop the gun - Брось пушку (Брось ствол, Брось пистолет).
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!
